PUR Binding is a form of perfect binding, where the pages and cover are glued together at the spine and the other three sides of the book are trimmed as needed to give them clean “perfect” edges. PUR is the most durable book binding glue available on the market today. A key reason PUR adhesive is often the preferred choice is due to its excellent flexibility and ‘lay-flat’ qualities. This in turn minimizes any spine cracking when the finished product is ‘flattened’ out for viewing. Hard cover photo books are a top quality photo book at a very affordable price.
